Di Marzio: Milan beat competition from Arsenal to playmaker – agreement reached with Real Madrid

By Oliver Fisher -

An interesting background regarding Brahim Diaz and his eventual move to AC Milan has emerged from Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Spaniard got on the scoresheet during last night’s win over Fiorentina, scoring a vital goal to level the game at 2-2 before Hakan Calhanoglu went on and scored the winner 18 minutes from time.

Brahim joined the Rossoneri last summer on a dry loan with no option or obligation to buy, and as Gianluca Di Marzio reports (via MilanLive), the Rossoneri had tried to convince Brahim to move to Milan during the 2019 summer window but without success.

A year later, as we all know, Maldini and Massara managed to close the deal, beating the competition of Arsenal who – with Arteta in charge – believed they could snatch him given that the pair worked together at Manchester City.

An agreement has already been reached with both Real and the player to sit down and talk about his future before the season ends. Given the excellent relations between the two clubs, the feeling is that a lot will depend on the will of the player.

    I thought we had made his move permanent…we have to…5 goals+ 4 asts is decent given he has not started many games

    Hes an alright player. My concern is that he doesn’t influence the game enough consistently

    He is like suso. Good technic good dribble but nothing more. 0 impact on game. Lose ball too easily and very physically weak. If he is too good then real will bring him back to madrid

      He is better than Suso, Suso plays beautiful nonsense, can’t score, can’t assist, right leg is dead.
      Brahim needs game time to grow and become a monster, he scores and assists, though not at that high level yet, but his definitely a good asset, both legs are magic.

        Time is over.Next year we won’t have time. Milan needs cl and top players asap. If you expect players to grow in milan then we will lose every top player we have. Donnarumma bennacer and theo won’t stay if we play with players below average

    Bad moves from milan. Serie A defender easily outmuscled him very often. He has good technique but not good enough to make significant impact.
    Hopefully the news is not true at all.
    Another loan move is ok but not permanent move
